DENR Unveils Four New Interactive Database Maps


PIERRE, S.D. – Today at the Department of Environment and Natural Resources (DENR) Environmental and Ground Water Quality Conference, DENR demonstrated four new interactive database GIS maps to a crowd of more than 100 people.


Located at http://arcgis.sd.gov/server/denr/gallery/default.html, searchable maps have been added to DENR’s GIS Interactive Map Dashboard. The maps provide data for more than 13,250 spill sites, about 5,000 closed and active regulated storage tanks, more than 150 locations to take recyclable materials and 97,620 filings for water right dry draw location notices.


These four interactive maps are in addition to the department’s interactive oil and gas map and construction aggregate map that have been available online. The oil and gas map opens 1,900 files for oil and gas holes and geologic logs from 96,595 other holes with a simple mouse click. The construction aggregate map shows the location of 4,651 active and closed construction aggregate mines across the state.


“As part of DENR’s continuing efforts to implement Gov. Daugaard’s priority of making state government more open by expanding e-government, these interactive maps provide information from four more huge databases that can be searched online by the public 24 hours a day, seven days a week,” said DENR Secretary Steve Pirner.


The interactive maps can be accessed from the department’s homepage at http://denr.sd.gov under “One-Stop Shops” in the upper left-hand corner.
